A True Friend

© Nicole more by Nicole

Published on November 2007

Before you became a friend of mine
We knew each other for quite some time
I hate to say we wasted a year and a half,
I'm glad we can now look back and laugh.

It's funny how things turned out,
I wish I could say I never had a doubt.
Truth is, I'm proud to say,
You and I have come a long, long way.

You touch the lives of people you know
You walk around with a humble glow
You've been a best friend to me
One that will last an eternity.

I know my secrets you will keep,
On your shoulder, I can weep.
You always listen and never judge me,
Always understand so objectively.

You light up a room when you walk in
I'm so fortunate that you're my friend
You are the epitome of a best friend,
I wish I had known that way back then.

Words can't convey what you mean,
A better friend I have yet seen.
You confide in me, and I in you,
You are a friend who's completely true.

I never thought we'd be friends like this,
A lifetime of this we almost missed.
I'm blessed things have turned out this way
I thank God for you everyday.

I'm thankful it was not too late,
My friendship with you was well worth the wait.
I love you for all that you are,
There's no better friend by far.
